Sea dragon

Speaking of the Netflix Fairy

The last couple of days I have come home to various deliveries (damn the ease of ordering stuff online!). Yesterday my two carpets I bought of Ebay showed up, and they were so gorgeous I nearly peed my pants. The picture on the web site was 100% accurate as to colors and condition, and the scuffed up floor in the dining room looks SO much nicer with these pretty little flowery rugs on them. The day before my book order from Amazon showed up ... the sequel to Lirael and the brand new Moon Guide to New Mexico. So last night, after Worthy Opponent kicked Cathy and my butts playing Settlers of Catan, I got to read about places to go in New Mexico. It's going to be a fun trip, but it's not going to be enough to satisfy my travel bug. I've got some sandals coming from Sierra Traders and a new sweater from Land's End. Lord, I'm a victim of LAN!

I had a fun time showing Rebecca my flowers yesterday, but I got a big old mosquito bite on my neck while we were sitting in the back yard and I'm convinced I'm going to die of West Nile virus now.

Not much to say about the Tablet meeting, although it's time for me to get to work on my blog story. Tonight I'm interviewing Dmitri from the Northwest Puppet Theater about the Hercules' Sneeze puppet opera they're doing in two weeks, and I've got to get it written up before I leave to Long Beach tomorrow ... which means that some time between Nina's house tonight and packing I've got to fit it in. Eek!

    None, thank God. Have I broken free of Chicago?
